For the good

The Big Egg Hunt

The Big Egg Hunt will be unlike any egg hunt you may recall from childhood. Presented by Fabergé, this inspiring 40-day event will see the streets of London decorated with 200 uniquely crafted 2 ½ foot eggs from February 21st. The designs will be created by an amazing roster of artists, designers, architects, fashion houses and jewelry designers. The event aims to raise over £1million for Action for Children and Elephant Family.

UnBox Conference

The UnBox Conference in New Delhi kicks off its second year with two days full of multidisciplinary celebration on Feb 3rd and 4th. The event will host lectures, workshops, performances, and exhibitions to enable creative expression in India’s leaders of development, music, performance arts, and design. One workshop that sounds enticing is the FoodLab: “creating sensorial gastronomic voyages that challenge the way one experiences and consumes food,” and a fellowship that sounds great is The Green Room, which aims to empower artisans in an Indian village through design.

Like the Warp and Weft on a Loom

Material Change tells the first-hand story (beautifully, thanks to Paula Scher) of architect and entrepreneur Eve Blossom’s creation of a sustainable textile business, Lulan Artisans. It tells the inspiring story of Blossom’s experience with Lulan, a “holistic design solution with a grassroots, bottom-up approach that can be applied to other culturally sustainable enterprises.”

Party Healthy

Kids don’t have to overload on sugar and snacks at birthday parties anymore. The British Heart Foundation rolled out an initiative with tools to help parents encourage healthy eating at parties without being a drag – complete with fun recipe ideas like rabbit-shaped carrot cakes, invitations, placemats, and stickers.
